it affects the election, i don't think anybody really knows. obviously we want unfettered access to the polls because we believe that the more people come out, the better we're going to do, and so to the extent that it makes it harder, you know, that's a source of concern, but i don't know how all the politics will sort out. it depends on how scenarios are impacted and so the best thing we can do is focus on how we can help people during this storm and hope that it all clears out and that by the next weekend we'll be free of it and people can focus on the election. >> let me put up a recent abc news-washington post poll for our viewers. the question was who do you trust to do a better job on the economy? posed to likely voters. president obama 44%. governor romney, 51%. why after all this time does governor romney beat president obama when it comes to the question of who could best handle the economy? >> well, first of all, candy, there's a plethora of polls out there. >> a lot of them sort of show this, david. >> i actually prefer the cnn polls. i like the one you put out on friday where we
and it's been a great working relationship to make sure that we're doing the jobs that people elected us to do and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for the people of our state. >> how do you think that went over at the romney campaign? then it was the president's turn. >> first of all, i want to thank everyone who has been involved in the entire rescue and recovery process. at the top of my list, i have to say that governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive. he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm and i think the people of the new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure the people of new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. so i just want to thank him for his leadership and partnership. >> as for mitt romney today, he held several so-called victory rallies in florida. at least this time he's admitting it's political. that's something he didn't do yesterday when he held supposedly nonpolitical storm relief events. today we learned that
the election, something neither campaign wants to hear. it's forced both candidates to cancel events in crucial swing say thees. we will talk to governor bob mcdonnell. i'm shannon bream, america's news headquarters live from the nation's capitol starts right now. we are nine days away from the election and the candidates are focusing on the battleground states. voting is rounder way in florida and several other state, so what will it take to sway the undecided voters who have yet to commit? joining me, a romney supporter, congressman, thank you for your time today. >> hey, glad to be with you. >> reporter: stephanie cutter said this morning, they have momentum, they are racking up a number of key editorial endorsements and they feel good about where they are. how do you respond? >> i wouldn't trade places with them. i think there is an air of desperation at team obottom a. mitt romney's rolling, he got the great endorsement from the des moines register, the polls show us moving in the right direction. i think the country knows its off track. we can't afford four more years. they feel comfortab
in some key swing states. how might hurricane sandy affect the election? >>> in office politics, america at a crossroads. we stand on what this election means, big picture, with some of our colleagues, the buzz from the msnbc newsroom. good morning, everyone. welcome to "weekends with alex witt" where you get to what's happening right now out there. we have this breaking news, sandy has been downgraded to a tropical storm overnight but the threat to the u.s. remains. five states as well as d.c., they are under state of emergency. people along the east coast are preparing for the worst. residents are bagging sand and boarding up buildings. out-of-state power crews are on call, ready to move in after the storm. sandy's powerful winds and flooding rains battered the bahamas and caribbean and at least 43 people have died as a result of this storm so far. most of the deaths occurred in haiti where officials fear even more fatalitiefatalities. nbc meteorologist dylan dryer is here with a look at the forecast track. good morning to you, dylan. >> good morning, alex. we are talking about this st
before america votes, we are about to get the last pre-election numbers on jobs in our economy. >> i got nothing left. memories or anything else. everything is ruined. ruined. >> survivors of hurricane sandy still waiting for help. they are worrying about the future. good morning to you. welcome to "early start." >> it is 5:00 a.m. in the east. we are going begin with a sprint to the finish line. the last major hurdle in the way. the october jobs report will be released in three and a half hours. both the obama and romney campaign hope the numbers will help them in the race. it's too close to call right now. christine romans is going to have a look at it. christine? >> let's talk about what we are expecting in the final economic report before tuesday. in three and a half hours, we'll find out what happens for jobs and the unemployment rate. the expectation is the unemployment rate is 7.9%, picking up slightly with 125,000 jobs added in the month. the trend, though, is what is so important here, right? sometimes you get a little in the month. the trend is what's important. 7.8% was the un
places on election day in the hardest hit communities that remain without power. good morning. i'm willie geist. this is "way too early." the good news trickling out slowly today. amtrak will begin offering limited service between new york city and boston. new jersey transit will start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system making advances, little by little. the m-train, which links queens to manhattan, just started run. there are still no trains running from low 34th street where half of manhattan remains this morning in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways are now waiting, as you can see in these pictures, in long lines for city buses. for those who drive into the new york city area, the lines stretched for miles yesterday. enough to make you turn around and stay home. in an effort to ease gridlock in the city, the mayor has ordered all vehicles entering manhattan must have at least three passengers. that stands for the rest of the week. there are check points set up on the way into the city with cars not meeting the three-person rule bei
's been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state and not once did he bring up the election. >> there comes a time when the grown-ups have got to do their jobs. >> if you don't run chris christie, romney will be the nominee and we'll lose. >> we begin tonight with the continuing effort to assess the damage and begin the cleanup from hurricane sandy. president obama traveled to new jersey today, the state hardest hit by the massive storm to meet with hurricane victims and state officials led by republican governor chris christie. the two men toured southern new jersey on the ground and from the air over flooded streets, flattened houses and piers washed out to sea. reporters did not accompany the president and governor christie as they flew on marine one, the president's helicopter. governor christie, who had been spending most of his days prior to the storm attacking the president on the campaign trail, today thanked him. >> i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we have lots of chal
are 10 days away. from electing machine to the white house that not just believes in the american free enterprise system, he understands it because he has lived it. we are 10 days away from electing someone to the white house who understands that the world is a safer and better place, when america is the strongest country in the world. [applause] and so as connie mack said a moment ago. you need to go out and vote and make sure five other people go out and vote. you can convince the people to vote. you know who they are. they want to vote. go get them there and if you know people in other states and places like ohio, colorado, virginia -- you need to call them on the phone and great thing about being from florida, everybody knows somebody from somewhere else. i don't want to wake up wednesday morning to the bad news that we almost did it i want to wake up wednesday morning that the republican majority took over the senate and republican majority -- [applause] that a republican majority remains in the house. [applause] and that mitt romney is the president-elect for the united states. [
to abolish fema. one week before election day and 800-mile wide hurricane is bearing down on 60 million people across a dozens states. the damage may be upwards of $18 billion and could produce life-threatening conditions. it's taken the lives of 65 people as it powered through the caribbean. the october surprise is here in a time of crisis voters must determine whether they want governor romney at the helm and if he there is what kind of relief will be on offer. the paradox of the mittens, obfuscation and adjusted policy continues. lawrence? >> excuse me. i'm doing a note to self about use that romney video tonight. >> please do, my friend. >> if the power is still on in this building and we're still doing -- >> please do. if that old video archive is still up an running. >> that's good. what you call on point. >> yes. >> for this particular news cycle. >> it is. john king interrupts him and says even for disaster relief and he continues on saying it's immoral and makes no sense. >> that's the wonderful version of ideological consistency that occasionally erupts in republican primaries
. this is a very important moment. i don't know if you know this but we're very close to an election eight days away. how he handles this might be enormously important to how you vote in november. that's the president talking about the importance of fema. when you talk to mitt romney, if he talks like he did during the primaries, he told you he's not interested in fema. >> therefema is running out of money and some are saying maybe we are learning what the state's role should you. >> when you take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. to go even further and send it to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: private sector? so you want to profit off this? mitt romney's obsessed, man. the only thing the guy ever thinks about is money. he sees a storm and doesn't think how am i going to protect america. no, it's how am i going to make a buck of this. this is not the time to privatize. that's like privatizing the police or fire department. oh i'm going to request those people in that storm depending if i make an extra dollar out o
ugly, to do anything to win this election. in miami, he's running a spanish language ad tieing president obama to fidel castro and hugo chavez. yes, venezuela dictator hugo chavez. that's apparently a-okay with mitt romney. [ speaking in spanish ] >> here's the translation. he approves that message. but the desperate kitchen sink politics don't end there. mr. romney's pushing the widely debunk claim that president obama is waging a war on welfare. it's the same lame story with his comments about jeep shipping jobs overseas. that's all ugly enough. but then there's this. he's bringing out the king birther, donald trump, to make robo calls and campaign stops in key swing states and the ugliness extends beyond the walls. they have taken to the airwaves with this low piece of political slime. >> obama claimed in a muslim country that america is not a christian nation, said congress had better things to do when it reaffirmed in god we trust. better things than trusting god? like what? >> this is what a desperate campaign looks like. this is what it looked like when a candidate will
's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't kno
's friday, november 2nd. you're in "the cycle." >>> in this it final week before the election we've seen seismic events that could shift a very close race. first, the devastation from superstorm sandy, 22 states affected and millions without power and billions of dollars in damage. the other big number this week, 7.9%. that's the unemployment number from the final jobs report friday before the election. a slight tick up, yes, but it was actually a better than expected report. a net gain of 171,000 new jobs added last month. good political news for the president. if the labor participation rate was the same as it was during the president's first year in office, unemployment would be closer to 10%. today on the trail, very different spin from the same numbers. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. i know we're close to an election, but this isn't a game. these are people's jobs. these are people's lives. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actua
. >> the federal government is closed. the new york stock exchange is closed. >> we're a week from election day. >> just seven days to go. >> i don't give a damn about election day. >> this storm is not yet over. >> the president has been all over this. he deserves great credit. >> the election will take care of itself. >> i will tell you, this administration could give a damn less about election day. >> they talked about people having a hard time. >> governor romney did attend an even in ohio. >> why ohio? why kmuz hchoose ohio? >> a storm relief event. >> if you have canned goods, bring them along. >> you need fema and need support. >> fema is about to run out of money. how do you deal with something like that. >> take something from the federal government and send it back to the states. >> you need fema and need support. >> if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> mitt romney can't show up on the east coast right now. he has to stay away. >> the president has been all over this. >> listen to your state and local officials. >> he deserves great
will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direct factory plants, the president leads 52% to 45%. some evidence there especially among white blue collar workers the president is doing better than he might have done otherwise without the auto bailout. what was fascinating four years ago when you visited where i am, you knew at this time the race was over because the president then-senator obama was doing so well here. look at our poll numbers here from cincinnati and the southwest part of the state. governor romney ahead 52% to 47% in a region that is absolutely essential to republicans if they are to win a close statewide election here. we visited both campaign hea
that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state. it is a teachable moment. it is one where once you land in new york, you see the city is a little empty and people are fairly desperate and the desperation is just going to start. our hearts and prayers are from people that live in harm's way and people that live through katrina know what it is. the political ramifications could show up on tuesday. >> is this a moment when as much as we are talking about the politics in short-tem electoral politics, is this a moment where we can get through a broader political conversation? >> it is not just that mitt romney would point fema back to the state but the very notion of inequality, of that 47%, that that is what is revealed in this moment. >> i think that's right. the feeling you have when you see what you just showed, which is someone through no fault of their own being dealt the worst tragedy that can befall a human being. when you look at people through no fault of their own w
today with just five days left until election day. the president hits three battleground states, wisconsin, colorado, nevada. the white house says the president will be briefed on details of the federal response to sandy, a day after he witnessed the devastation and promised to cut through all the red tape. mitt romney makes several campaign stops today in the swing state of virginia. >>> and there is more evidence at just how close this presidential race really is. a "wall street journal"/nbc news/marist poll of three bat e battleground state shows president obama with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a two-point lead in new hampshire. just five days left. >> it is so interesting to watch this as we get to that deadline. it's so fascinating. john, thank you very much. >>> back to our "starting point" this morning, it's day three of that fallout from superstorm sandy. millions of people without power in their homes. and as john mentioned, they're literally trying to pick up the pieces that remain from their homes, the pieces of the
away from a presidential election. and there are some literally logistical issues with that. but bill karins was watching this morning, and you said something that really rang true. three days after a disaster is when the novelty wears off, when it really starts to hurt. bill. >> yeah. i've been going through these the last 15 years of my career, and this is the end of the glow. everyone's all together. it's a novelty. you're getting through it. if you did approval ratings of all the governors in the affected areas, they'd be sky high. this is it. from here, the anger and frustration begins to build from my experience going through these events. once you get to day three and four, all the food in your house is now gone. the gasoline crisis is going to continue. and your generator, if you have one, you can't even get gas for it. it's all of a sudden, it's cold out, too. you have to find somewhere to live. and then the cruelty of who gets power when. maybe your neighbor gets it and you don't. of course, the hospitals will get it first, the schools will get it, the police and fire statio
in this election. now, change is a future where we reduce our deficit in a way that's balanced and responsible. i signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work, but if we're serious about the deficit, we also have to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says wh
